I am trying to setup an away message template, but when I go to save the mesage, the only template type available is *.dot; when you go to create the rule, it is forcing to look for a *.oft. Using Outlook 2003 without  Exchange. Any suggestions?

Hi thefunnydad,

Sounds like you're using Word as your email editor.  Try switching to Outlook as the mail editor.

Cheers!

my mistake!


my comment can be deleted as I was the donkey who checked in a rather wrong place =)

I did not see at first that the correct checkbox for that is under Tools -> Options -> Mail format.

let the topic sleep again, sorry...

I've already turned Word off as my email editor - or I wouldn't have been able to Save As .oft.

I can Save As .oft - I just can't read the .oft files.
